Community Clubs Development Officer
My role is to engage and support community clubs and create projects to develop Rugby League and in turn increase participation within the sport. My projects include; the Club Ambassadors Scheme, social Rugby League programmes, Coach Education and Junior Development projects and events.
I have played Rugby League as a schoolboy for my City and County and for my Amateur club representing the Leeds & District at youth level. I played professionally and Amateur Rugby League until my late 30s and I am still playing our wonderful game in the form of Masters Rugby League. Other sports include Judo and Karate and most recently I have taken up Kayaking. I turn out annually for the Leeds 10K.
Bringing up my 2 children and watching them grow into good human beings.
